Re: 14 bad tranny

Brand new 2014 GC Limited with a transmission problem? Sounds familiar.

I hope you're going to ask for another one because I had a bunch of transmission issues with my early build 2014 Limited with the V6, and even after multiple fixes, it still shifted like crap. I ended up trading it in and getting a later build 2014 Overland...and after 5,000 I'm experiencing transmission issues once again.

Damn it...Now My 2014 Overland Has A Transmission Issue!

Re: 14 bad tranny

Why would a new car have holes in the exhaust ? Did they forget to install the O2 sensors ? Sounds like more than 46 miles.

Hmmm... I've never heard of anything described like that. There are plenty of threads out here about the harsh 2-1 downshift and 2-3 upshift. If you've read through any of them... is it anything like that?

Re: 14 bad tranny

Take it to the dealer for service. Don't screw around with it.
